    Thanks I needed a Miami Minute… I have one thing to say… “Shut up and buy the boat!” Regards, Capt. Tommy P.

    Great running tour of the show. A walk through two minutes in length would
    have been better.  A total waste of time.

    Not ONE SAILBOAT image. I guess there were no sailboats at this year’s Miami Intl. Boat Show. I know Latitudes & Attitudes TV attended with a full professional video rig. I’m sure Bob and Darren would have provided some great sailboat images to provide some balanced coverage to your video.

    This is a great overview of the scene at the convention center.  I rarely get by the indoor displays at FLIBS and Miami but they are quite similar to the LA show…a long tedious week (unless you are shopping small boats and toys).
    If you would care to shoot Collins Avenue and make it a few minutes long, I’m sure it would “go viral” with the large yacht brokers, owners crews and buyers around the world.

    I really thought it was great, It showed that people are really not ready to buy,
    That $150,000.00 Ski boat (Yet), Because they did not find a job yet,
    and they are not into the sam business as most the people in Fl.are,
    So please tell me who can afford to buy 4 verdo engines or 8 yamaha, to put on there Go Fast Fishing machine????????????????,

    Sailboats? You’re complaining about lack of sailboats? Maybe when sailors start spending money like powerboaters, you’ll get some attention. This economy needs more people spending, not rich people looking for handouts, free coasters and not tipping the waitstaff.

    Interesting to see the Bayliner & Meridian booths. 2800 people lost their livelihood when US Marine closed including the entire R & D staff and all of manufacturing. Sea Ray inherited all the tooling.

    Certainly, there were sailboats. The entire marina and tents at Miamarina at Bayside was Strictly Sail Miami.  It is just that Trade Only was only making a video of this ONE location of the four available.  The Miami venue is huge and cannot be covered in a one minute video. 
    Regarding sailboats, go the the show website and look at the exhibitor list.  Jeanneau, Tartan, Catalina, Lagoon, Beneteau, Passage, Hunter, etc., etc., etc., and many, many more were all in attendance and showing boats at the show.  All the major vendors were also there.

    Wow! Very difficult to watch.  Makes one dizzy.  I would have liked to seen a better video of the show.  Thanks anyway.

    I have worked the Strictly Sailing Show at Miami for 16 years and only go by the conventioncenter about every 5 years. There is nothing there for men5z.
    FYI we had the best show since ’07 – over $7M in sales.
    Sailors are buying – especially top of the line cruisers.
